WOW. My heart is full.
This was my first official mini session and I didn’t know entirely what to expect with it. I went into with a few things I wanted though. I wanted to see my people- my families, some of the little kids I’ve been capturing since they were 1 and 2 years old. I was afraid with my workload this summer that I wasn’t going to get to see them this year, so that was my biggest priority was creating space and time in my calendar for these humans I love so much. I also wanted these to be FUN. Like, a lot of fun. I didn’t want them to feel stuffy, or too posed or stiff. My favorite photos are almost always candids and interaction based, so I designed a set that allowed for a lot of that. Lastly, I wanted to truly deliver on the images. I wanted to deliver emotions and happiness and wanted everybody else to see these genuine families that I know and love.
The day was long, my mom came out and helped with welcoming people and answering texts and calls and making sure everyone had what they needed. I had a local neighbor who brought down his truck for us to use and he stayed THE ENTIRE DAY because he thought it was so cool to be around. My dad brought down extension chords and helped set up some of the bigger things. AND each of my families brought their own energy, positivity, and fun attitudes. It was a team effort, and I was tired at the end but so energized from each and every one of these people I got to connect with that day.
From the BOTTOM OF MY HEART, thank you THANK YOU for coming out to see me. To let me capture you and yours. For letting me tell a small part of THIS chapter of your lives. I look forward to doing this again!
